QUIET, smooth working, enduring. 
Stop and think how much Care- 
free Doors can mean in your home. 

In every home you've lived in you 
probably had at least one door that 
squeaked or sagged — that resisted all 
efforts to swing it. So you realize that 
the dozen or more doors in your new 
home are vitally important. They are 
the places where faults can be most 

That's why, when you build or re- 
model you're going to see to it that 
your doors move easily, smoothly — 
remembering that the nations carefree 
doors move on Stanley Hardware. 

For more than ninety years, The 
Stanley Works has manufactured de- 
pendable hardware. In those ninety 
years Stanley has learned much about 
how to build into its products that 
quality, finish and utility which is of 
interest to the home owner and builder. 

Your town has a Stanley Dealer. Go 
to him with you hardware problems, 
you will find his counsel invaluable in 
the selection of equipment for your 
new home.^

^TANLEY "Roll-Up" garage door 
equipment increases the attractive- 
ness of any garage. Its appeal lies in 
its simplicity of appearance. 

An easy pull will roll the door up- 
ward smoothly and quietly leaving the 
opening entirely clear. Two large coil 
springs do the work. 

'*Roll-Up" Doors are weathertight 
summer and winter. They operate 
smoothly and easily and are unaffected 
by snow or ice in the driveway. When 
closed the doors rest on the floor and 
will not warp or sag. 

A wide assortment of stock doors is 
available so that the garage door can 
be selected in a design to match the 
type of garage itself or in keeping with 
the style of doors used on the residence. 

The doors are made in four horizontal 
sections joined together by sturdy side 
hinges having ball bearing rollers which 
operate in the track on each side of the 
door opening. They are so carefully 
balanced that they will remain in any 
partly opened position. A rope is at- 
tached to the bottom of the door as a 
convenient means of pulling the door 
down to close it. 


^TMIE door is locked with a cylinder 
-*^ lock which may be masterkeyed 
with the house door so that one key 
opens both. 

Every working part of the ''Roll-Up" 
Door Equipment is inside the garage so 
that it is protected from the weather. 
As an added precaution, all metal parts 
are treated with a durable, protective 

The only requirement for the use of 
'*Roll-Up" Doors is a minimum clear- 
ance (or headroom) of 9}4'' from the 
underside of the top of the door casing 
to the ceiling of the garage. This is all 
the room that is needed to accommo- 
date the door when open. The door 
moves straight up so that it will operate 
in a garage no longer than the car itself. 

Stanley *'Roll-Up" Doors come com- 
plete, ready to install. The wide vari- 
ety of stock doors enables you to easily 
select a design to suit your taste with- 
out the added cost of specially designed 

''Roll-Up" Door Equipment is 
reasonably priced. Because the cost 
varies somewhat with different instal- 
lations we suggest that you get your 
hardware dealer to give you the cost of 
"Roll-Up" Doors for your garage.

Garage Door Hardware 


STANLEY "Swing-Up" Hardware 
Equipment incorporates a new 
principle in door operation which is 
best explained by the term floating. 
A slight pull on the outside handle 
(until you feel pressure) is all that is 
needed — let go and the doors will 
float up to a full open position. From 
the inside all that is needed is an easy 
push with the foot at the bottom of 
the door. 

The adaptability of **Swing-Up" 
Hardware Equipment is best indicated 
by the fact that it can be applied to 
any pair of stock doors — either new 
ones or ones now in use. Because of 
this adaptability to old as well as new 
doors '*Swing-Up" Hardware has been 
widely used to correct the evils of 
doors that sag and bind. It is a simple 
matter to convert them into a tho- 
roughly up-to-date, smooth working 
door by the installation of this moderate 
priced equipment. 

The doors are fastened together with 
heavy bridge-truss braces at top and 
bottom on the inside and with, a rugged 
metal strip on the outside which serves 
as a weatherstrip. The doors are there- 
by made into one unit which operate 


on the pivot principle and are swung 
up into the open position by two heavy 
coil springs. A unique safety latch 
holds the doors securely in the open 
position and prevents accidental clos- 

A very important feature of Stanley 
''Swing-Up*' Hardware is that the 
garage need be no longer than the car. 
The door swings outward and upward. 

Steel plates along the side of the 
door on the inside serve as side stops 
and as effective weatherstrips. The 
'*Swing-Up" equipped door is weather 

In Stanley **Swing-Up" Hardware 
you get efficient, long-wearing garage 
door hardware equipment at a sur- 
prisingly reasonable price. Your hard- 
ware dealer will be glad to furnish you 
with this popular equipment. 

In the case of a two car garage 
**Swing-Up" Hardware makes it pos- 
sible to use the full width of the open- 
ing by handling the door as one com- 
plete unit. This eliminates the neces- 
sity of center posts.

Electric Operator 

for "Roll-Up" and '^Swing-Up" 
Garage Doors No. E4131-D1 

Ride right into your garage 

PERHAPS you look upon an electric 
door operator as a luxury but when 
the driveway is ankle-deep in snow or 
slush it comes very near being a neces- 

Used in combination with Stanley 
^^Roll-Up" or "Swing-Up" Equipment 
this electric operator is a wonder. 
When you come home just insert your 
key in the switch located conveniently 
at the side of the driveway. The doors 
open easily and smoothly and you 
drive in. Inside the garage is another 
switch which is equally handy for 
closing the doors. Doors can be locked 
either from the inside or outside. 

Best of all the Stanley **Mighty 
Midget" is exceptionally low priced, 
far below what you would expect to 
pay for this type of convenience. It 
is comparable to any other electric 
appliance in that it can be plugged 
into any light socket. It is simple to 
install and there is nothing to get out 
of order. 

No. E4131-D1 is designed for use on 
"Roll-Up" and "Swing-Up" Doors of 
the standard 8' x 8* size or smaller. It 
is also available for "Swing-Up" doors 
16' X 8' (No. E4131-F1). For larger 
doors refer to No. E4131-A1 operator. 

Because of its low cost you can easily 
avail yourself of the convenience which 
the "Mighty Midget" affords. Your 
hardware dealer is in a position to 
supply the "Mighty Midget" Operator. 




No. E4131-A1 

^TMIE all-purpose Electric Door 
-*- operator. The standard operator 
is adapted for use on '*Roll-Up" and 
* 'Swing-Up" Doors up to 16 feet wide 
and swinging doors (hinged) up to 9' 
X 9'. In the case of any type of door 
not included above it is recommended 
that the door be equipped with * 'Swing- 
Up" Hardware after which the operator 
will work perfectly. 

No. E4131-A1 is a truly deluxe 
equipment. It functions perfectly and 
is offered with various up-to-date 
methods of control. For instance, the 
standard control is by means of Push 
Button, in which the opening or closing 
button is pressed and held until the 
door is either open or closed. Release 
of pressure on the button stops the 
door in any position, most important 
for safety. 

Three other ingenious and almost mys- 
terious methods of control are available. 

1. Photo-electric Control — when the car intercepts 
a beam of light the doors open, automatically. 

2. Photo-electric Control by auto headlights or 
spotlight. This is the cleverest one of all. When the 
headlights shine on a hidden photo-electric cell the 
doors open automatically. 

3. A Driveway Plate. This is like the automatic 
traffic signals you find at important street intersections. 
When the wheels pass over the plate the doors open 

With each type of control the doors are closed by 
inside or outside push button. 

This unique Stanley Electric Operator is the most 
outstanding automatic control for garage doors to be 
had. It has gone far to remove the inconveniences 
which everyone dislikes when entering or leaving the 
garage. Naturally this operator costs more than the 
"Mighty Midget" models but you will be surprised at 
its reasonableness. Again your hardware dealer can 
furnish details and prices to meet your individual needs.

FOLDING Sliding doors often solve 
the problem of what doors to use 
when it is impossible to provide more 
modern equipment. This "Under - 
Soffit" Hardware Equipment also meets 
the requirement for swinging doors in 
limited drive way space. 

Because the track is fastened directly 
to the underside of the top of the door 
casing (soffit) it is protected from the 
weather. The design of the track is 
such that the doors can be opened 
either in or out. No track could be 
easier to install than this one. 

''Under-Soffit" Hardware Equip- 
ment can be used on openings with 
three, four, five or six doors. The doors 
in each case must be equal in width. 

If you prefer folding sliding doors be 
sure to get your hardware dealer to 
show you the particular advantages of 
this "Under-Soffit" Hardware Equip- 


T^OR the person who prefers swing- 
-^ ing doors with attractive hinges 
and whose garage location permits 
their use Stanley recommends these 
two types of equipment. Several other 
sets of- swinging door equipment are 
available to meet every condition of 
appearance and price. 

Set No. 1780^ includes three pairs 
of beautiful 32'' ball bearing hinges of 
Colonial design which add greatly to 
the dress of the building on which ap- 
plied. Doors are fastened by the unique 
Stanley Kee Bolt which both latches 
and locks the doors top and bottom. 
Convenient Door Holders (No. 1793, 
see next page) hold the doors securely 
in open position. 

Set No. 1781>^ includes two pairs of 
24'^ and one pair of 18" ball bearing 
hinges of Colonial design. A Stanley 
Kee Bolt latches and locks the doors 
securely at top and bottom. The 
unique Stanley Door Holder No. 1790 
makes it possible to operate both doors 
together and to hold them open se- 
curely against the wind. This holder is 
especially suitable for application to 
curved-top doors, like illustrations on 
this page. 

Sets No, 1780>^ and 1781>^ are readi- 
ly available from your hardware dealer

Garage Door Holders 





As pioneers in the manufacture of Garage 
Door Holders, Stanley has saved hundreds of 
thousands of garage doors from being smashed 
by heavy winds to say nothing of automobile 
bodies, fenders and headlights which would be 
broken and dented by the accidental slamming 
of a door. 

There are four different Stanley Door 
Holders all of which operate on the same 
general principle. Most of them are stock 
items with your hardware dealer, and if not, 
he can get them for you promptly. 


Operates both doors at the same time. Doors can be 
easily opened or dosed and because the doors operate 
together the wind pressure is equalized so that there can 
be no accidental opening or closing of the doors. Ideal 
for curved top doors as it can be applied without the use 
of a block under the header. 


Friction Type. An effective friction device checks 
the momentum of the door as it reaches the full open 
position, relieving shock on the door, jamb and hinges. 
Released by a slight pull on the chain. 


A practical, inexpensive holder, 
by a slight pull on the chain. 

The bar is released 


The most popular garage door holder made. Strong 
U-shaped bar, extra heavy bumper plate, released by a 
slight pull on the chain. 


For use on residential garage doors, there is 
nothing finer than these extra heavy ball 
bearing hinges, made of wrought steel, 
toughened and hardened by cold rolling. 

Not only are these hinges practical, but 
they add to the attractiveness of any hinged 
door garage. 

Nos. BB 1461, BB 1461>^, BB 1462 and 
BB 1462 }4 have hand -hammered edges and 
ends, and are treated with a rust -resisting 
base before final finishing.

Seal your house against the cold with 
storm sash. There is no cheaper way to lower 
heating cost and to insure warm comfort. 
The dead air space between storm sash and 
regular window sash makes a perfect insulator 
against the cold. Storm sash equipped with 
Stanley Hardware is easily applied, removed 
and operated. 

Storm Sash Hangers 

There is a Stanley hanger for every type of con- 
struction, whether the sash is set in a reveal, hung 
flush with the casing or hung outside the casing. 1716 
is the most popular for storm sash hung flush. The 
hangers are easily applied and permit hanging or re- 
moving the sash from inside the house.

and when closed to lock the sash securely in place. 
Easy to apply and non-rattling. When sash is re- 
moved, the arm is left attached to the sash, so that 
re-hanging is very simple. 



This fastener permits the sash to be opened to various 
degrees, a turn of the wing nut securely holding it in 
the desired position. The tightening of the wing nut 
also prevents either sash or fastener from rattling, and
